Lofoten Cello Duo had its first appearance in Alfredo's living room in Barcelona. Amongst vermouth and home brewed beer the two cellists were inspired to continue this intimate format and work of the fusion of Scandinavian and Catalan folk music, without forgetting complex Balkan rythms and beautiful Jewish melodies.
Carles Muñoz Camarero has relocated to Vienna because of love and stayed because of music. He admits he can't live without listening to the radio daily and is passionate about crustaceans like lobsters or goose barnacles, fascinated by islands in the middle of nowhere like Jan Mayen or Tristan da Cunha and tries to play cello mixing different styles such as classical, flamenco, pop, free improvisation, jazz and world music.
Håvard Enstad came to Barcelona for a year of studies. Ten years later he is still there and continuously tries to spread the joy and beauty of Scandinavian folk Music. Carles was one of his victims and Lofoten was the result. When Håvard is not composing musicals or working in his garden, he participates in world music festivals to learn music from places you didn't know existed.
